Throughout August, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is running comment sessions on NOAA's Request for Information on Equitable Climate Service Delivery” asking the question
What do you need to prepare your community for climate change?
Schedule at https://www.eventbrite.com/cc/equitable-climate-service-delivery-2404789
"NOAA released a Request for Information on how the agency can increase capacity and access to climate services for climate preparedness, resilience, and adaptation planning in historically underserved communities—including Tribal and Indigenous communities–as well as how the agency can better include Indigenous and local knowledge in our climate services. We want to hear from YOU! Your feedback will be used to develop an Action Plan to 1) make NOAA’s climate services more accessible, understandable, usable, inclusive of the social and economic impacts of climate change, and capable of addressing complex hazards, and 2) build capacity for and support users of all disciplines and backgrounds, particularly historically underserved communities and Tribal communities, by expanding science literacy and successfully applying climate services to science-based decisions about climate risk and resilience."
Just might be time to speak up.
